    This is an awesome mod! Unfortunately, it stopped working for me (that is, the penguins disappeared) when I upgraded the server from 1.5.2 to 1.6.2. I had these mods in place on the previous version:
    • Biomes-O-Plenty-0.5.3.zip
    • DungeonPack 1.5.2 v3 Universal.zip
    • RancraftPengForge_v152l.zip
    • reptiles-1.5.2-forge-685.jar
    and upgraded to these with the new server:
    • Biomes-O-Plenty-0.6.0-1.6.2.jar
    • DungeonPack 1.6.2 v1.zip
    • RancraftPengForge_v162n.zip
    • reptiles-1.6.2-forge-789.jar
    Everything seems to load just fine (there are no error messages in the log), but when someone logs in the penguins disappear and the server has the following types of messages:

    2013-08-13 23:46:12 [WARNING] [Minecraft-Server] Skipping Entity with id RancraftPenguins.EmperorPenguin
    2013-08-13 23:47:02 [WARNING] [Minecraft-Server] Skipping Entity with id RancraftPenguins.EmperorPenguin
    2013-08-13 23:47:02 [WARNING] [Minecraft-Server] Skipping Entity with id RancraftPenguins.EmperorPenguin

    Anyone have any ideas? I have already tried pulling out each of the individual other mods and restarting, just in case there was some kind of conflict, but in every case it gives the same error (and no penguins). Thanks for any suggestions!


    We think that updating causes already-existing penguins to disappear, although some further testing is required to prove that. Could you try using spawn eggs to spawn penguins, or possibly going to an area you haven't explored before to look for new ones? If you can get penguins to appear in those cases, then that is probably what's happening. We'll look into the problem and try to figure out what we did wrong. Also, the warning you copied sometimes occurs on servers where the penguins work fine, so it might not be related to the problem.

    Sorry that all your penguins disappeared :(

    If I made an updated Mod Review of this, would you put it as the forum page vid? You can check out my channel xxJOBOOxx so you can see how my other reviews are. I make sure to include everything and organize it as much as possible. It's a Pretty sweet mod so im probably gonna do a review on it either way :) If you want me to do it or anything just post a comment to my channel ( I check it more often then the forum pages ) I hope you respond and best of luck to making this mod popular :)


    Your other reviews seem pretty good, and if you put that much work into this one we'd love to put it on the original post. To make sure you've included everything, head over to our wiki at http://rancraftpenguins.wikia.com as it is a lot more comprehensive than the main post. Have fun making the video!

    I'll also comment this on your channel.

    These penguins are very awesome, just don't keep a ton near you or there sound will drive you crazy! [snip]


    Great video! You covered pretty much everything in the mod and have a good style of commentary. We have put your video on the original post.

    Btw, the reason why you were unable to breed the penguins was that one of them was sitting down. The breeding functions like wolves in this way.

    Thanks!

    I have a weird question, when you are finished with all penguin species, do you plan on making say a Rancraft: Whales or Rancraft: Turtles. I really liked the quality of your mobs and id love to see you take it beyond penguins.... anyway I just thought seeing your penguins hunt Rancraft: Fish... or having them hunted by rancraft seals :)


    Maybe, but we still have several penguin species more to do, and there are some other ideas that we want to include before the mod is finalized. Then we may add expansions such as these that interact closely with the main mod, but do not contain as much depth or as many species and require the original mod for them to function. Thanks for the idea!

    posted a message on RingsCraft [Lord of The Rings Roleplay] *NOW CLOSED FOR 4rth AGE*
    Hey, I'm randalpik and here is my application for this server.


    Out of Character(OOC): (Don’t be shy we won’t ban for this part it’s only to know our players)
    IGN(In Game Name): randalpik

    Roleplaying experience ( What Roleplay servers have you played on before? Or what Roleplay games have you played before): This is my first Minecraft server dedicated to roleplaying. I have played on other roleplay-themed games, such as NationStates, as well as with my friends informally.

    Age ( Please do not lie It won’t make you better): 13

    Country/ Time zone: US - Pacific Standard (GMT-8)

    Where did you find us?: I found out about this server from a friend (frodobaggins4 on here).

    Why do you want to join us? (Please be a bit detailed): I enjoy Lord of the Rings, and this server seems like a good place to roleplay with other fans; it also seems like a good balance between conventional Minecraft and roleplaying, so I can do both at once. I would also have fun roleplaying with my friend who is already on the server.

    IF you could choose a character from the list in the post, who would you want to be and why?: I would enjoy being Saruman because he is a minor evil from the series but isn't the main enemy, so not everyone would fight against me but I would still be a fairly important power.

    Time you can give to this server(Everyday, or per week): I would probably be on for about an hour on most days.

    Who are the Evil Characters of Lord of The Rings?: Smeagol/Gollum, Balrog, Sauron, Saruman, Orcs, Bill Ferny

    Have you read the rules?: PIPPIN :D

    What is RolePlaying for you? : Roleplaying is taking on a different personality and acting out scenarios that usually take place in another world or with a different theme (in this case LOTR.)

    What is MetaGaming in your words? : Metagaming is when your character knows more than he should, or your character uses something that you know but that it would be impossible for him to know.

    What is PowerGaming in your words? : Powergaming is forcing another character to do something unreasonably without the other player's consent, like making them stand still while you kill them or something.

    In Character(IC) INFO:

    *Your IC part better be detailed if you want to be accepted*

    Name(Please give your Character a name that fits with your race) : Calofas Took

    Race(Go see the race section higher up. And is he a man or a woman): Hobbit, male

    Age: 32

    Character Backstory It should be about 2 paragraphs. 200 words and more about. And please no stories like this : His parents were killed by orcs. He trained, found the orcs, and slayed them all. The End. ( You cannot be anyone important in the server without being approved. You cannot already start out some one important, you need to work your way to the top.): Calofas Took was somewhat introverted, which showed very early in life. He could hold a conversation but often people were repelled from him because he was eccentric and didn't really talk much. His younger brother Ardobras was almost the opposite, until Calofas reached the age of 29, and their mother died of a fever. Ardobras became quiet and withdrawn, and now comparatively, Calofas was almost an extrovert. The death didn't seem to affect him very much, as he knew that he couldn't do anything about it. He tried to comfort his brother, but there was a grief inside both of them. Calofas respected the new lore interests of his brother Ardobras, but was now more talkative and more drawn to the outdoors, nature, and gardening.

    Roleplay Example ( A conversation between your character and someone else. We want to see who well you can Roleplay ): Calofas walked inside, almost reluctant to leave the paradise of the outdoors. "I'm home! Ardobras, you'd never guess what I caught today."
    Ardobras sighed. "Yet another butterfly? Our house is going to be full of them if this keeps up. But I have almost got our family tree sorted out, back to the time of the Stoors."
    "Well, I guess that will be helpful. But I'd rather be outside than burrowed in books. Are you going to cook dinner tonight?"
    Ardobras was silent, back to his lore. Calofas decided it was hopeless to try and drag him away, and went to find their father.

    Personality traits: Slightly outgoing and quite adventuresome, but also studious. Looked up to by many, but repels a few.

    Physical description or image of skin?: Moderately tall but also stocky (for a hobbit.) Sandy blonde hair and dark blue eyes. Dark-ish skin. I will get a new skin soon to match this.

    Skills of your character : Quite a good marksman with a bow. Knows quite a bit about herbs and plants, as well as some animals (but usually quite small ones.) He can swim like his brother but is not so fond of it.

    What is his ultimate goal? ( Ex: Becoming a king, owning the biggest farm, being the richest merchant in Gondor ) Calofas dreams to go to Gondor one day and become famous for his herbal knowledge. He also respects elves and wants to meet them one day.

    Hi everyone! We have released a new version of the Penguins mod, and we are back with Bukkit! We have also created server and client versions for Forge. The version, 1.2.5f, also includes a new species of penguin and some bug fixes.

    What kind of fantasy penguins? Are you going to keep it a surprise? :P Can't think of anything other than a Nether Penguin, maybe a flying one, but can't think of anything else.


    As for the models, I've been meaning to ask, do you use Techne to make your models or pure code? If it's with Techne, how would rotating the tail squares sideways look (to make it into triangles)?


    The two fantasy penguins we are planning are Cloud Penguins (which fly) and Ninja Penguins (which I think was sort of your idea to begin with, actually. We'll give you credit.) We could use more ideas for fantasy penguins though. Desert penguins, anyone?

    As to your next question, we use Techne. Here's a Yellow-Eyed penguin with its tail rotated:



    Do you like it? I think it could use some refinement. (I think this is what you meant, but I'm not sure.)

    Hi! It's randalpik from the Rancraft team, and I'm here with some information on the future of this mod!

    Currently, we're working on a version of this mod that uses MCForge, because some mods that use Forge aren't compatible with the current version. Also, with Forge we'll be able to create a version that works with Bukkit. We will keep updating the ModloaderMP server and client files too, because those are widely compatible with other mods, whereas Forge isn't as popular.

    The next version, 1.2.5f, will also include a seventh species of penguin and lots of bug fixes. We hope to have it released within the next few days. After that, we plan to add three penguin species in each update, eventually including all 17 species that exist in real life. There are also two more fantasy penguins in the works.

    My girlfriend LOVES this mod. Waiting semi-patiently (not that I have a choice ;P) for the new penguins!


    Yeah, this is taking awhile... we just got back from our vacation to find that Minecraft 1.2.5 is out. Once the wiki is updated then we can finally post the update.

    Immediately and I will be on a vacation until Easter. We sadly are not quite ready to post version 1.2.4e, which includes three new penguins, an entirely new feather system, and more. This means you guys won't get the update for awhile. Thanks for the patience!

    Quote from KeKoSlayer29

    Id love if you could model for me. you can do it any time you want. it can look like anything i dont really have an idea on bow it should look. theres no need to rush :) just take your time

    I model using Techne; I can create a model but I'm not that good at incorporating it into the code. The program spits out model and render files, but I can try to make the pivot points convenient to work with. Probably if it has the same general body parts as the player, it would be pretty easy to get the model files to actually do what you wanted.

    I may not get to it for a while, considering we are working frantically on Penguins to finish the additions we've made before people get impatient about updating to 1.2.4, but once we finish that I'll have more time.

    It would also help to get the skin for the original monster so I can make mine have the same general look.

    P.S: PM'ing me would be a better way to contact, because I'll see it without having to go to this thread.

    Good luck with the mod!

    Good idea, but wouldn't finding the camps be just as hard as finding the villages?

    I think this is good for other reasons than finding villages though; maybe there could occasionally be villagers trapped in the dungeons.

    Also, tattered-clothes villager skin is obligatory.

    Hi! I'm from the Rancraft team, you did a video awhile ago for our Penguins mod :)

    If you want to change the shape of the gelatin monsters from the default person-skin, to make them bigger or whatever, I'd be happy to do a model. This mod seems like it has good potential! :D
